Wichita Pickleball Now Has an Official Website

Posted on May 3, 2021 by under Community, Hobbies.    

Meet Bill Mitchell. The man who inspired the new website.


I met Bill while checking out McAdams Recreation Center a couple of weeks ago. As with all the new people I meet, I encouraged him to join the Wichita Pickleball Facebook group to connect with other pickleball players in the area. There’s only one problem. He doesn’t have a Facebook account. This isn’t the first time I’ve heard this response. A lot of people these days are not Facebook. It got me thinking, how do we reach people who, like Bill Mitchell, are not on Facebook?

I came to one logical conclusion: we needed a website. And so was born. I had a couple of hours to spare and unused hosting space on so I made a simple website using WordPress. I purchased the domain from Go Daddy for less than $20 and then just forwarded the domain to the new WordPress site on my existing host.

Along with this, I also started an email list for those who want to stay informed. So now people who do not have Facebook accounts will have a way to keep up with what’s happening in our pickleball community without having to become part of the Wichita Pickleball Facebook group.

I don’t know why it took me a couple of years to do this. I think mostly I was too busy before and only recently had time to really think about things. Anyway, it’s live now and I hope that people find it useful.
